Given the bulk of WA lens and ports I thought folks might be interested in this article:

I doubt such technology will be on market soon.




#320242 The hazards of wet lenses (Bonaire)

Posted by allen on 09 November 2012 - 01:23 PM

So I am in Bonaire for a week of diving. We do our check out dive and and couple of other dives the first day. That evening I get my camera gear set up. I am going to get my UK Germany LX5 housing wet for the first time since Uwe sent me a wet lens for it. We do the first dive and I take a few photos. As I enter the water for the second dive I wake the camera up and I see a water line in housing!!!! Ahhhh!! I swim like hell back to shore all the while watching the water line and waiting for the camera to die. Just as I reach shore I notice that the camera has not died. What the hell?? I look at the front and see water in the lens. Then it becomes clear - literally and figuratively. The wet lens was filling with water :-)))). I laugh at myself and then explain to my dive partners my irrational behavior as I swim back out.

I will up load a few photos for folks to critique here soon. In the mean time please laugh at my anticts :-).
